Jenny Hayes

Membership Secretary

Jenny has been a member at Bolton since 2007. She came onto the Executive committee in 2011 with some fresh ideas, and with her husband Ken started the Learn2Bowl sessions.  These have ensured a steady stream of new bowlers coming into the club and were one of the reasons why we became Bowls England Club of the Year in 2014.  She is a qualified Level 1 Coach, and has filled the position of Membership Development Team Leader before this rôle..

Lyndon Noon

President 2022

Lyndon began bowling in his mid 20’s. He won the Greater Manchester Short Mat Bowls Championship 2 years running in the early 80’s and also won the Butlins Singles Championships in 1985 pocketing £1000 in prize money. Shortly after, he switched codes to flat green bowls and has won indoor and outdoor County titles in double figures. He has been proud to represent Lancashire on many occasions.

David Travis

Green & Surrounds Team Leader

David joined the club with his wife Christine in 2019, answering an advert for new members. Having played badminton competitively for over 40 years and coached juniors, but never having played bowls, David looked for an additional sporting challenge to fill the long days of retirement. Due entirely to very good partners, David won balloted Pairs, Aussie Pairs, and Triples competitions in his first season. Never one to sit around and watch the work being done, David volunteered to assist the green maintenance team and must have done too good a job as he was then co-opted to manage the team (There must be a lesson there!)

John Muldoon

Honorary Treasurer

John has been a Bolton member since 2015, after taking fifteen years to find the place (it's a long story).  Plays both competitive and social bowls and enjoys both equally. Only works when he can be bothered these days as would much rather be playing bowls. John is also the Men's Captain and as such selects the Men's Team for National and Inter Club Competitions.

Graham Ellis

Honorary President

Played Crown Green aged 20 in Wigan, but gave up after losing to 'semi-pro' old timers. Visiting Australia in 2015 he watched son-in-law play at local club.  A  few practice sessions later was playing in their weekly Pennant teams.  Found BFGBC in the UK to keep his eye in and got roped in.  Greatest honour is representing Lancashire along with winning a number of team events with Bolton.
